Subject: RE: Name This Tune - Bachgen bach o dincar
It is, isn't it, Marcus? And if you followed Jeri's link, you heard a Canadian lumbering song. I'll bet the tune has been thru Nova Scotia or Newfoundland.
However, it changed a bit. The version in Jeri's link is the same as I have heard, and the last line is a straight descending [minor] scale, from 5 down to 1 the tonic. (I can't recall offhand how one identifies a minor melody with scale note names -- would it be from so to doh or me to la?)
